The initial debut of the BMW 2002 Hommage concept took place not long ago in May during the Villa d’Este event – but for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance the Bavarians thought about a complete new set of “clothes”.
This classic motorsport inspired livery should have fans drooling over – we see a great looking burnt orange and black setup matched with new 20-inch gold alloys, which could make the concept look a little less polarizing. The livery is a direct inspiration from the iconic Jägermeister paint jobs on racing cars like the M1, 3.0CSL, and E30 M3. “With its iconic orange/black paintwork,” comments the automaker, “the car has a color scheme and livery synonymous in the minds of many motorsport fans with the triumphs of the 1970s.”
The concept is another move into the brand’s century-old anniversary and hearkens back to the original BMW 2002 Turbo from 1973 and also pays homage to the turbo technology’s introduction in motorsport in general. The concept has been keen on expressing the classical BMW cues in a decidedly modern fashion and will be showcased at the Pebble Beach Conccours d’Elegance on Sunday, August 21st. Just like the first time, BMW has refrained from detailing the powertrain – but we’re still betting on it featuring at least a pair of turbochargers.
